The La Sportiva Ultra Raptor is made for all-day pursuits. Have you guys seen Jurassic Park? The raptors are more terrifying than the T-Rex and can run forever, so just image what an ULTRA raptor would be like. I know, right? Since it's built on a neutral platform with a sticky rubber outsole, this shoe provides an awesome base for long distance moving. The forefoot rock guard makes sure that you won't bruise your precious metatarsals and the deluxe heel pocket cushioning and reinforcement will for sure keep you cozy. This shoe is pretty much designed to make it feel like you're running on a perfectly flat surface, even if you are fleeing over the squalor of an island filled with genetically engineered dinosaurs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the fit! I will use these as approach shoes on summer mountain climbs! I climb fourteen eras in Colorado and when we camp and climb I don’t wanna be in my climbing boot the whole time. Very comfortable and durable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Comfortable Awesome shoe for trail hiking around Northern Michigan. I also worn them last summer while in Montana and Wyoming doing day hikes around Big Sky and Jackson.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great off trail shoe I love the durability and toughness of this shoe. It does great in scree, scrambling, and even low fifth rock because of its stiffness. However, it's stiffness makes it less than ideal for easy trail running. I'd recommend it as an approach shoe or alpine running shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality Tral Runner I primarily run on the beach. The shoes have great La Sportiva quality, good traction, light, and snug fit.The toe box has enough room to be functional and not tight. I normally wear size 13 US and always order size 47.5 in La Sportiva shoes and boots. This works out perfect for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good summer hiking option I purchased these to be an alternate to my La Sportiva BoulderX approach shoes for summer hikes. They have held up pretty well considering some of the more rock/scree trails I traverse. I would say the lugs on the bottom have not faired as well as I would have hoped or liked but terrain dependent. I've used these across he country from Utah through to Bear Mtn NY.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mountain Beast This shoe is a burly mountain beast. I'm on my second pair. I grab these when I head out to CO for mountain trail running, hiking, and because of the sticky climbing rubber La Sportiva uses on the outsole, climbing approach. It's not a minimalist shoe unless you use it as a light backpacking shoe (it's totally capable), however the protection is outstanding. Rock plate and rubber toecap are great for downhill trail bombing. I've motored these over rock, cactus, and post holed them through snow. When I'm running on easy trails I grab a lighter shoe but when I go to the mountains these shoes always go. Love 'em. Sizing is small. I had to size up two Euro Sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best all around trail runner ever! It's not an ultralight trail runner and its not a beefy hiking shoe. What is it? It's hands down the best trail runner ever made. No other tread pattern or material will grip better on rock, mud, scree, dirt, loose gravel and wet rocks/roots. I have been everywhere in these shoes and they have never let me down. I am now on my 5th pair.They have ample ankle support, protected toe box, great shanks for those sharp rocks, the ventilation is good, not great. Never any blisters under 12 miles.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Prefer the La Sportiva Wildcat Bought these hoping to wear them on a 92 mile/7 day hike on the Ozark Trail. Took them on a 3 day shake down hike and decided to stick with the Wildcats; much more comfortable and less foot fatigue.

Is this La Sportiva Men’s Ultra Raptor shoe waterproof? I had been trying to find out through Descriptions/Specs and even reading the reviews. I can’t seem to find an answer, not even a hint. I am getting a pair if it is.
